Vincent Longo Diamante Quad in Aquila Review and Swatches
Indeed, that’s exactly how I feel about Vincent Longo Diamante Quad in Aquila! Who wouldn’t love all that shimmery, glittery, gorgeous goodness?
Last year two colors of these fantastic quads were introduced and I brought each rather quickly as soon as seen them pop up on Sephora’s website! I was quite happy to see the introduction of these palettes as they combine four great colors of my very favorite eyeshadow, Vincent Longo Wet Diamond Eyeshadow, into one cute, chic little quad. Loves it! Plus at $40 USD the colors are broken down to around $10 USD each which is considerably cheaper than purchasing one color at $25 USD.
This year Vincent Longo extended the color line up to include Aquila which contains an array of vibrant, shimmering shades that are ideal for Fall. I’ve collected a majority of the Vincent Longo’s Wet Diamond shadows and the shades in the Aquila quad are far different from anything available in the line which makes the palette extra special in my opinion.
The shades included are a subdued aqua that looks almost like a blue/gray shade, a deep, dark purple, a peach shade with touches of cream, and a brighter, true peach. Although the shades don’t directly go well together (at least I don’t think they do) the two peach shades paired together make a rather great Fall look and pairing the purple and aquaish shade looks great together as well!
The shadows are wonderfully pigmented and have an almost baked feel to them. They contain a good, healthy dose of fine shimmer so if you’re not a big lover of shimmery shadows you may want to avoid this quad like the plague. However, if you’re like the Muse and simply adore shadow with tons of shimmer, glitter, and sparkle this will likely appeal in a major way! The effects of the shadow creates a super soft, silky finish while adding beautiful diamond-like sparkle. Fall out is a problem during applicaton but I find with proper prepping the shadows adhere great and fall out woes are minimal!
All in all I truly love the colors in this quad and find them beautiful for the Fall and well into the Winter and even the Summer and Spring. The palette is truly beautiful to add to your collection or to get you started, as these tend to be like chips, just can’t eat one or in this case just can’t own one!
I look forward to possibly seeing another shade pop up soon as last year they first introduced Roja I believe and Cassini popped up a few weeks later so the possibility of seeing another color selection prop up shortly is definately there. I haven’t heard too much in regards to Vincent Longo’s Fall Collection but I am particularly excited about the release of Aquila so I look forward to seeing what else is introduced after!
Vincent Longo Diamante Quad in Aquila is very Muse Approved as are all the Diamante Quads!
